“I think this book was a great read. Not only for moms but dads should read it too. Many people hide behind their children and come off as someone who is so overwhelmed in their life that people automatically assume they are not equipped to be a parent. I believe this book can help put those stressed families at ease and get back to being a family.”

“I would recommend this book to any parent or child who is interested in bettering their life through building themselves and learning to effectively communicate. It is a practical application that can be put into effect right away.”

“The Parents Forum handbook ‘Where the Heart Listens’ by Eve Sullivan is an excellent resource for parents and is not your everyday parenting handbook. It’s focus on developing the parent is a refreshing change from other parenting books which focus mainly on what “to do” or “not do” with your child. By developing the parent to become a more effective listener and identifying their own feelings then practicing how to communicate with others without judging, the child is affected in a positive way with parents as good role models for compassion and empathy.”

“I was very pleased with the book as a whole. My children are teenagers and I am faced with challenges on a daily basis and this book has shown me how to cope.”
